Notebook

 

In 2016, metal fabricator Cory Fass stripped his chopper motorcycle down to the naked frame. When he welded, I observed. I asked questions while he was grinding steel and polishing aluminum. I learned about motorcycles, design, craftsmanship, and a lot about Cory Fass. 

To Say Something is sixteen lessons, sixteen things I learned or confirmed about saying something through visual elements during the hours spent witnessing a custom chopper come to life in a Kansas City double door garage. This class is to help photographers, visual communicators, draw closer to their unique expression, to point to something, to say something. 

To Say Something

Photography is a visual language. It's a means to say something. Handled with dexterity, the camera can do more than record, dumbly. Made with purpose and intention, the photograph can give more than evidence. Although tools are necessary to make a photograph, this class is not about tools. It's about expression. It's about using the visual elements to say something.
